Example of Poorly Written Lab Report Example of a poorly written lab report Objective In this lab we will use weights hanging off a string to calibrate the response of a torsion pendulum. Then we will put a 10kg and a 20kg weight next to the torsion pendulum and measure its deflection when the weights are 10cm and 20cm apart. We will plot the value for m 1 m 2 /r 2 versus force and use the graph to determine the value for G.
